My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this one just before going to sleep last night. It was a VERY quick read.

This is so little to this book that it felt like a magazine article. Well, what do I want for free? As much of a greenhorn as I am, I felt I knew most of the information in this article. So, if you are looking for an overview of what organic gardening is all about and some minor ways to achieve it, here is a place to start.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As a result of a recent visit to the central desert of Oregon, I may very well have a place for gardening. The timeline of when we will get there will be fall so gardening probably won’t happen right away. That doesn’t stop my sudden need to know about such things. And so it was I had to start reading about different types of gardens.

I had heard of straw bale gardening the last time I was a greenhorn, over 20 years ago. So I thought I would start with this book. It was free, so what the heck? (BTW, it is still free with Kindle Unlimited.)

This book was very general information and the bits that venture into deeper instructions were confusing for me. I think my biggest question was about the fire hazard of straw bales mixed with certain fertilizers… why wasn’t that addressed? I am still afraid to try to do this. And I know I will have to deal with rodents, how can I make it work?

There were a few pictures, but for this visual learner, not enough. I like the idea of a greenhouse built of the bales, but again, fires????

So, I suppose this is a great book to get an overview. I have so much more to read about now!
